I've been put first in the queue for a pretty much plug&play EJ from a friend's buggy, 'just' need the Adaptor plates, manifolds, exhaust etc. Known engine in good order.
But my father in law is about to hang up his keys to a 1998 Passat 20v non turbo. Is it a better proposition? No doubt some fiddling to do but another known engine and the time and space to strip the loom...
Currently running 4spd DG.
